Exclamation Need help: Mercedes C240 mod. 2002

Greetings everyone. I tried searching for an answer but couldnt find a case similar to mine so I will post my problem. Yesterday my dad borrowed my mercedes C240 mod. 2002 & left the head lights turned on, locked the car & gave me the keys. After 10-12 hours when I was going out to pick some friends I couldnt unlock the car with my wireless car key. I unlocked with the small metallic key that comes with it but the siren went off. So I stopped it with the panic button and went in but everything is just jammed. I cant do anything anymore. The dashboard says something about SOS call (Very dim light) & two flashing buttons caught my attention (The alarm light located on radio & central far right button that looks like my car getting towed). Apparently the battery didnt fully die so any advise on how to pass this jamming situation & turn my car on?

first off, (test, replace if bad or) recharge that battery fully. You may need to erase some faults to get it to function right if recharging alone doesnt fix it.
